whYSL?, November 2003
The whYSL? issue, Spring 2020 from TANK Magazine.
The froth and frivolity of fashion, for which it is all too easily dismissed, is essentially about dreaming and imagining the impossible. This issue of TANK notes Slavoj Žižek’s reminder that “authentic politics is the art of the impossible” and leans into this fantastical excess. Rummage through emails from revered postcolonial scholar Edward Said Kim Jones on rave culture and fashion’s new breed and dive into Tom Ford’s unearthly vision for Saint Laurent.
